This is my secondary blog and is designed as an archive of my handmade creations, past and present. I also add dates of fairs I'm attending, where I offer for sale my handmade pieces and also carefully sourced vintage goods. I hope you will enjoy taking a look, Niki x

40 Winks

Handmade bed linens for a c1930's toy bed. More details can be found on my main blog here.
The bed is the perfect size for my medium sized rag dolls to have a snooze in.
Like Dahlia, who sold recently.

In Stitches

A lot of the linens that I bought recently were either soiled or had holes in them, which sadly seems to make them unsaleable. I decided to salvage the good bits (particularly the lovely hand embroidery) and rework them into cushions.

3 new cushions in the shop this week!

A New Life

I've started to reuse the special hand embroidered bedspread that I discovered last month at a flea market. Sadly it was beyond saving for its original use, so I salvaged what I could of the beautiful hand embroidered border.
It was lovely to work with and was ideal for making some unique bags. Two have been squirrelled away for the Vintage Bazaar next month.
